    Just updated and tried it out on my Broken Heart Robot toy, and it successfully identified it! That put a big smile on my face!

    That is extremely cool. I've tried taking a photo, scanning barcodes, QR Codes and Chinese -> English translation. Very awesome.

    Just found my answer. Goggles requires an auto-focusing camera to work.

    This is another reason why touch 4 fails. Deliberately making it thinner so they wouldn't have to put the more expensive iPhone 4 cam in it now means a cool app is denied.

    I really wanted this app. I might end up getting a smartphone yet.

    Doesn't do anything amazing that I can't already do with regular search but nice that it's there.
